I enjoyed these novellas enough that I am currently looking for the rest of the "family secrets" books from Silhouette.

In, "The Invisibile Virgin," by Maggie Shayne, a shy socialite who is socially inept finds her social match with a rancher. In, "A Matter of Duty," by Eileen Wilks, an ex-spy comes home to his old love to find her the target of a sadistic ex-husband and helps her out while rekindling their love. In the final story, "Inviting Trouble, " by Anne Marie Winston, a spitfire who loves the land is teamed up with the man who inherited it and is trying to sell it to developers.

All three of these were satisfying reads, a bit predictible in some places, but well crafted characterization and dialogue makes up for a great deal. ( )

Neat. I thought this one was after the end of the series (which I still haven't read in full) - hadn't realized it was short stories setting things up. Now I'm even more interested in the series - the books I'd read before this one were good but only peripherally related, these stories started showing me how they really are parts of the larger story. Some bits overlap throughout - Jake's fiance, for instance. ( )
